    Hoodman HAV1 reviews

    HAV1 Drone Aviator Hood for iPad mini, DJI CrystalSky 7.85" is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would reccomend this to a friend I live in Florida, and use an iPad mini with my Inspire. On an overcast day, I cannot see anything on my iPad. The HAV1 does give me the ability to see my screen on a sunny day. While this is not %100, it is certainly better than seeing nothing at all. I don't think there is a perfect outdoor solution for using a tablet in daylight. I originally tried DJI's product, and if you have your iPad in a case, like I do, you cannot use it. This product does let you adjust it, so it will fit on your iPad if you use an Otterbox case like I do. This sunshade looks like it will hold up over time, and is a good value for the money.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hoodman very good on a DJI Phantom 4 Pro controller - BUT I am very pleased with the hood except for the fact that it is a little less high ((up and down) as used on the drone controller)) and a little less wide (left to right) than it could be to fit the best. It seems to be 5/16 less width than I would like and only about1/8 less high than I would like. I know this seems minor but this fact on the width makes it difficult to reach the right hand side button on the ipad 4 mini. Otherwise I like this very much. I hope they will take this to heart and improve the size to provide the best fit possible. If that was done I would give it five stars.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from well made and fits nicely I put the iPad mini into the straps, THEN mount the entire thing onto my DJI transmitter platform (Phantom 4). Works very well. The only thing is that the access port on the bottom is too stiff to gain easy touchpad access. I may cut that part out, as it won't let much light in from the bottom anyway.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phantom 3 drone aviator hood What a great product. Fit on my Samsung Tab S2 perfectly and is very stable. Looking to get the hood extension as well. Made very very well and will hold up for the long term. You cant go wrong with Hoodman peoducts. A must have when flying any Drone using a tablet style screen. Fast shipping Free using B&H website. Great experience using this company A++

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs to be modified The hood does a pretty good job of blocking out ambient light but it's almost impossible to access all the controls on your flight app (DJI Go, etc) through the access flaps. To solve this I cut out the flaps and most of the lower panel and about a fourth of the right side panel (since I'm right handed). Now I can easily reach 90% of the controls on my flight app. If you decide to do the cut out like I did, be aware that the material this hood is made of is pretty tough so you're not going to be able to cut it out with a pocket knife or pair of scissors. I used surgical scissors and a utility knife. Also make sure that the attaching straps are not pushing in the volume control buttons on your iPad or you'll keep getting a pop up screen for the volume. FYI, You're still going to get some reflection of your face when you look into the hood so don't expect a perfectly clear image. One thing that helps is to turn the brightness of the screen up as high as it will go.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it is supposed to do A little cumbersome to install but fit is very good and build quality is very good. For the price, this is the way to go for outdoor use of ipad mini. I tried cheaper hoods and they just were not effective in reducing light. This is well built, moderately priced, and easy to store when not in use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall, pretty good. I use with ipad mini 2. It fits it blocks light and reflections. Downsides: the finget slit is a bit tight, and one tied own strap presses on up volume button and needs diverting.
    Date published: 2017-02-06
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from See great, not as easy to use the touchscreen It does a great job of eliminating glare from the display, and makes it a work easier to use an iPad mini on a bright sunny day. Only drawback is that using the touchscreen is awkward. Maybe I will get used to it after more use. I might see if I can widen the access slot a bit to make it easier.
